Fitlab Performance Assessment Cycling - pro level testing for everyone $150 ($130 with a plan)
Providing essential physiological data to evaluate your cycling performance. Retest every 8 weeks to monitor improvements and re-evaluate zones. Fitlab tests are the same tests you read about pro riders undertaking. Whether it’s the now infamous Ferrari testing Lance Armstrong or Massimo Testa tracking Cadel Evans and the BMC team’s training, lactate testing is the gold standard.

About the test:
After taking resting measures such as blood pressure and body composition and a short warm up, you will do repeated efforts at increasing intensity levels. Heart rate, power and lactate are recorded for each stage. The complete assessment takes approximately 90mins.
